Excellent VERY authentic venue. A huge array of different foods. Will definitely go back. Much off the temple grounds are outdoors so it is hot in Tampa summer

Sunday! Just visit this place on a sunday and experience the amazing food! Sit river-side at the picnic tables while you dine on the food served by the locals benefiting the Thai temple. Your donations help preserve this hidden gem!
